The One and Only
Stellareese winemaking is a collaborative effort between Rachel & Geoff Davies. Rachel fell in love with the art of winemaking in 2004 and spent the next 6 years working with Greg Brown, founder of T-Vine Cellars, gaining valuable winemaking and business experience. In 2007 Chateau Montelena gave up their long time contract with Marcey’s Vineyard. This was when Geoff and Rachel began Stellareese and committed to making wine based solely around this vineyard. In 2013 Geoff took over the hands-on winemaking of Stellareese in the cellars of Outpost winery, where he works. Both Geoff and Rachel are intricately involved in the winemaking and vineyard management. They are passionate about crafting a wine that captures the pure expression of Marcey’s vineyard.
Our 2015 Stellareese Cabernet Sauvignon is dark garnet in color, and highly aromatic with nuances of red cherries, rose petals, baking spice and a sweet herbaceousness. The initial full flavors of red fruit are followed with a hint of cola and dark cocoa on the finish. This is a wine that is bright and fruity with rich, savory undertones and pleasant acidity. The tannins are fine grained and well integrated. Delicious now and promises to age beautifully for years to come.
